Virgo git Repositories

The Virgo source code is organised into separate components each stored in a git repository. The Build tab details how to clone and build these components, but if you want a quick peek at the source code, follow the Short Name links in the table.

Source Organisation

A typical git repository is organised into the following files and directories:

build-xxx/                         // top-level build directory                   // properties substituted during build
build.versions                     // dependency version properties         // a project
...                                // more projects
virgo-build/                       // git submodule

Each project is organised into the following files and directories:

.classpath                         // Eclipse build class path
.project                           // Eclipse project metadata
.settings/                         // Settings
.springBeans                       // Spring tooling metadata
build.xml                          // Ant build instructions
ivy.xml                            // Ivy build dependencies
src/main/java/                     // Runtime source
src/main/resources/                // Runtime resources
src/test/java/                     // Unit/integration test source
src/test/resources/                // Unit/integration test resources                        // Bundlor template

How to Add a git Repository to Virgo

While this information is mainly of use while the Virgo repositories are initially being populated, it may be useful later. It says how to trace back from Virgo to its origins, how to update a repository description, and what files to copy when a new repository is added.

1. Add the new repository to the git server (may require project lead privileges):

>ssh <committer_id>
>cd /gitroot/virgo
>initrepo org.eclipse.virgo.<reponame>.git
<log out e.g. using Ctrl-D>

2. Clone the new repository:

>git clone ssh://<committer_id><reponame>.git <repo dir>

3. Create the directories of the new repository and any .gitignore file. For example:

>cd <repo dir>
>cp <source dir>/.gitignore .
>cp <source dir>/o* .
>cp <source dir>/b* .

4. If you are creating the new repository from an existing git repository, tag the existing repository and make a note of the tagged commit SHA.

>cd <source dir>
>git tag Virgo-checkin
>git push origin master --tags
>cd <repo dir>

5. Add a submodule for Virgo build.

>git submodule add git:// virgo-build

6. Stage all the above changes and push to master.

>git add .
>git commit -m "initial checkin from <existing repository> commit <tagged commit SHA>"
>git push origin master

7. Edit .git/description, making sure the file is a single line ending in a newline, and rsynch this.

>rsync .git/description <committer-id><reponame>.git/description

8. Add the new repository to the table above.
